we have no agency at the moment as i've mentioned on my previous posts. we are directly communicating with the legal assistant of our new lawyer and our immigration lawyer as well..actually, year 2006 was the first time I heard that my packet 3 has arrived then after a year or so, this new immigrant lawyer said that they had received our packet 3 too because of some adjustment i guess. I hope our new lawyer moves faster than the former..

There seems to be more issues that keeps popping out. All I can say is good luck.

In multiple places on this very thread, you have mentioned agency and having issues with them. Who in fact is the petitioner and has that changed?

You still have not answered whether or not the DS-230 has even been approved? If it has never been approved and this is the first time that it is being submitted, you are not going to be getting a visa anytime soon as having a current PD date without a completed file is not going to get you thru the process. And again, that is why the PD dates have moved forward because of so many that never had completed files. You still need to get approval on the DS-230, and then when that is done, it will depend on what PD date is current at that time. Having one that is current now and only having approval in the I-140, and you will have more than enough time at your new job. Would not recommend that you quit to return to the Philippines, as you have quite a wait in front of you.

And if there was a change in the original petitioner, then the PD date that you have is actually no longer current for you, and the new date would be used.

Hi susanne..yes let me ask that thing with our lawyer.what I knew is that only our agency and lawyer has been changed not the employer or petitioner as we still communicate with them until now.

[color=#333333]hi suzanne....i am not quite sure if this would answer your query about my case but i have copied a portion of the email of the legal assistant last march 08..please drop me your idea about it..."as you may have heard, the nvc has started to issue new packet iii's to applicants with pending petitions. i am happy to inform you that i have received your packet iii. please note that as of the april 2008 visa bulletin, your case is current.

[color=#333333]as always in the ever-changing world of immigration, the nvc has issued a new ds-230 part i and ii and given it a new expiration date of september 30, 2010. that having been said, i will need a newly completed ds-230 from you and each family member (spouse,children) joining you in the us (if applicable).

[color=#333333] complete the attached ds-230 part i and part ii.[color=#333333]please make sure to fill out this form completely paying close attention to the locations for all places you have resided since the day you turned 16 years of age. you must list full dates (mm/dd/yyyy).

[color=#333333] also, after reviewing your file, the following documents need to be updated in order to submit your packet iii."...........[color=#333333]so suzanne, i guess this means that, my previous ds230 hasn't been entered at the nvc right?and this might be the first one incase...so, i might fall to a conclusion that my case still have a long way to go...

I am so sorry if I have quoted or copied her email.......My bad...I just don't know how to explain....I really love this site for helping lots of nurses.....

Did you ever receive notification that the original DS-230 was approved, this is what I am asking you.

It is hard to tell from this letter as it looks like one that just had the dates filled in by computer and is quite generic.

I would ask the attorney if you ever had approval on the first DS-230 in the first place.

Not sure how you have the same petitioner but not the same agency that was mentioned earlier as most will not just let you stay with the facility without them being involved.

yes suzanne..I have asked from our lawyer, u are right that this is just the very first time for them to submit my ds230...

This is bad and sad. Hopefully, if ever they submit your Ds-230 that they do everything right the first time around.

Majority of the ones you are reading here are just asking for updating of any docs that has expired so closing out their cases are much faster compared to someone who is being asked for the DS-230 form for the first time. There are even instances that the NVC ask for a new fee if the case has been deemed inactive for a certain time (usually 1 year of no activity or communication) to them.

oh well....it's really sad....Been waiting for 3 years now...I hooooppppeee it wouldn't be another year more to wait..Thanks anyway lawrence

You do not have approval on the DS-230 and one was never submitted until the past few weeks.

Next issue then for you would be if you had had it submitted when it should have been and then you just left for Saudi, what would you be doing if a visa was available? Breaking a contract there? But would not worry about it as you are going to have more than enough time to get the contract completed there.

These are issues that you need to take up with the employer as well as the attorney. And do hope for you that the administration does not change at that facility, or they could be cancelling your petition and that would require you to start from the beginning with a new employer.

This probably was something that you should have done quite sometime ago to begin with, no one else would remain with someone for this time and not see things moving foreward at all, like in your case.
